Still working on Sister Gong's bicycle riding skill, but it does wonders for her when the others get involved in the holding capacity and cheering section. Even if it doesn't make her ride any better, at least she feels supported. And that's a LOT to a sister who's misplaced in another country, and the cheering section is made of mostly elders. Male elders.
The days at ERS are much busier, now that I have a little better idea what I'm doing. I feel I can be a little more help, and I'm looking forward to the days when I'm SO confident that I'll rely on inspired help, rather than working so hard on trying to get the mechanics down. I'm still learning a lot and I'm constantly asking poor Sis.Thurgood questions but in her usual, patient way, she responds with a very logical answer and right away. Because our little front receptionist is gone to a different job now, I'm also the receptionist. Whoooo-ah!! Gotta check my phone/PR skills, man! It's a whole new world for me!
We adopt the Jacob Lake tradition of Sunday night treats, but only occasionally, I'm afraid. We had cinnamon rolls one night which were devoured, and Sis Thurgood made delicious apple cobbler another Sunday night, also devoured.
We went after church one Sunday to take photos at the Alhambra arch, a city icon.
And always the companionship photo ops.
